What is life without hope?  Amidst the ashes and broken dreams wrought by the bushfires in Australia, life goes on.

A Vow Softly Spoken

smoke in the distance
lights a wildfire in our heart
hope for the future
heart, mind, body, soul
we shall overcome


My nephew and his lovely lady got married recently.   I wish them all the very best.

Kind Regards.

      1. “Hope” is the thing with feathers –
        That perches in the soul –
        And sings the tune without the words –
        And never stops – at all –

        And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
        And sore must be the storm –
        That could abash the little Bird
        That kept so many warm –

        I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
        And on the strangest Sea –
        Yet – never – in Extremity,
        It asked a crumb – of me.

        Emily Dickinson

        It’s true that hope takes courage. There are so many places where I don’t have the courage to hope. 😦
